Well, well..........

It seems to me that IC generally has little interest in the cup competitions.

The line up picked and the rather tame finish, seems to bear that out....but maybe I am being a bit unfair and showing bitterness so soon after the final whistle.

Does show the difficulties of keeping good players when you are suddenly a small fish in a big league and fighting to become competitive. Weymouth have also lost several key players to better teams in the NL and leagues above.
Also highlights the problems of having a Norwich loanee as goalkeeper with no back up. If the season continues, Lynn have to now hope that Mair's head is not turned by events.

Surely, it must be that the other players and staff have not been tested....or not tested within the correct timeframes (?).
If no one has been in contact with Jones since the 22nd, that's now 20 days ago, so if the remaining staff have a negative test now, they must be clear to play...or am I missing something.......... don't see why the Alty game would be off

You do realise you are advocating replacing a "slippery nipster" with a "hooligan"  :laughcry: :laughcry:

Furthermore whilst McAuley is doing a solid job of defending, we could have avoided the need to defend, by attacking before the opposition :laughcry:

Presumably not too busy with post match interviews at Wroxham for the next 6 months ?!
Transcript of the interview usually appears in EDP on line next day albeit a little cut about

They are really only mid table once everyone has played the same. .....but don't concede many and fight till the last.
I still think we can go there and get something.
Let's wait and see what "The Tactical Technician who doesn't believe in tactics" recommends... provided he is still not charging of course !

Please stop doing yourself down Dilly...keep offering your services f.o.c. for goodness sake.....why not say "for a small and reasonable fee"....you'll be added as an "advisor to management" in no time, with all this supposed extra cash coming into the NL :laughcry: :laughcry:
You should perhaps come up with a role title tho...how about "Tactical Technician" :laughcry:

Yes I am also hoping we can nick it and agree with line up...

Like you say KES...the whole things a farce.
Complete lockdown...unless: you're obviously a key worker or your'e a teacher or you're of school age or you work in a shop that sells food or work in a factory or drive a bus a taxi or you're a professional football player or just simply have lots of money....where you can spin the public a yarn and fly off to exotic places on "business" trips.....so....other than that complete lockdown... :dontknow: :dontknow:



Add to that the following that are allowed to be open :
Dentists, Estate Agents, anyone whose work involves repairs...be it to cars or buildings, Construction workers, garden centres, any professional working on a painful condition or mental health eg chiropractors, physios, chiropodists,acupuncturists, reflexologists,osteopaths, counsellors,etc, all banks and building societies etc etc

Presumably all the volunteers will provide names, contact addresses, sign in on the Test and Trace App, scan the club's QR code and most importantly agree to the Elite Sport protocol of two Covid tests a week for the duration of lockdown, with the tests presumably being arranged by the club !


This is where the government's messaging keeps falling down......we have the highest Covid rates so far and the rhetoric advises people to stay at home, but the published law is still no more than tier 4 restrictions, so loads of people can still go out to work and carry on as normal, some of whom can also  claim extra financial support (a bit like the football clubs)...... it's farcical.

Let's hope their confidence is justified..........makes me think there must be more in the pot or potential pot at Lynn, than is sometimes suggested....
I' m all for strengthening the club in general and making it more professional...... it's just the timing of this that feels a little incongruous.....as for Kiwomya....I wish him well and hope he proves to be a good signing........seems like he has had a number of set backs along the way and has plenty to prove.

Think  some of that might have been used on the new Secretary and the other winger that joined..... surprised the club didn't wait just a week or two more before replacing Loza.......if things shut down very soon, it would have been a useful saving.

I will be very surprised with Covid rates as they are, if we don't have a repeat of March, with elite sport attempting to continue, but having to stop within a couple of weeks, because too many will be getting infected.
Given the  foreseeable situation, it won't be right if clubs start bemoaning their plight if they run into a financial problem having just made signings.

« on: January 04, 2021, 12:35:52 PM »
Think it will be more than a few weeks Mac.....I suspect 6-8 weeks minimum....and getting back to 'normal'.... hopefully late spring early Summer, if there are no further damaging mutations or set backs. If we lock down within the next 48 hrs and the league doesn't resume till the 1st March or later, I would think it makes sense to make this season null and void for the NL. Lynn have only played 13, Dover only 10, Championship and Premier League teams are much deeper into their seasons and so the top competitions may be able to play to a finish.
Better for the NL to call it off at this stage, when even Torquay can't claim they are destined for promotion, only 16 games in, than try and get teams to play 2/3 matches a week for 3 months in an attempt to finish the season.
